    Yeah, I think Gamble is a good pick but like Athomas, moving Eddy on for Polo is a strange one.

    People who comment on afl clubs on facebook are stupid.

    Like this from a WB person...." Also why did collingwood get more picks than us?"

    Barlow, De Boer, Silvagni and JVB all upgraded, with one pass to pick up JA in the pre-season draft.

    Wasn't Eddy a forward option when he played and Polo would be a midfield option for the Saints?

    Polo is the strangest pick in the draft. There is still young talent available such as this guy who I hope WCE get to rookie as I thought he would go top 50 for sure :-

    Warwick Andreoli
    DOB 28/2/92 Ht 182 Ht 73

    Andreoli looks like a stereotypical modern winger. He is smooth mover who covers the ground well and plays the game at pace. He has a nice kicking style on his left and will carry the ball, breaking the lines and hitting the forwards up. He has a name as an exceptionally quick player but watching him closely on a few occasions I am not sure how well that stacks up. He accelerates well and seems to do everything at pace but he rarely runs away from players and its not uncommon for him to be run down. He might well be one of those guys who has a reputation for being quick and when you see him play you agree but really isn’t. Whatever though he makes the best of what he has got and he plays the game quickly. Looking at his Combine results he put up a nice but not great time in the 20m and did poorly in the endurance events. It could well be that he does not have the endurance at the moment to make full use of his pace.

    He plays predominantly outside and will look to receive on the outside of a pack at first instance. If he sees the ball coming his way though he will attack it and he wins more clearances than you would expect for a guy with a firmly outside reputation. When under pressure his hands are not particularly quick and his kicking does drop off. In tight he also does not have the cleanest hands but he is very good at keeping the ball in front of himself and working it forward until he has the chance to pick it up. He maintains good balance over the ball in the contest for such a light guy. His balance overall is a feature of his play particularly when he is on the move or kicking in space. His agility is very good and he has a lithe body which enables him to make tacklers miss or make only an easily broken grasping grab. He moves between tacklers very well and frees his arms pretty well in tackles. He is not much of a defensive presence and its rare to see him making a tackle.

    As an outside player you would also like to see him winning more than the 15 possessions a game he got at the Champs. As mentioned above his endurance base at the moment is poor and he needs to build his engine and free himself up more. Mostly at the moment he tends to follow play and receive in fairly congested situations. He needs the running ability to allow him to get to dangerous spots more often. He is a country boy who has developed well in the time since joining South Fremantle but there is still a way to go but the development curve for him is good and he has shown a willingness to work on his game.

    Overall pretty happy with our picks with Atley and Harper - Harper looks really skillful and uses the ball well and Atley as i mentioned awhile ago he reminds me of Pendlebury good inside player.

    Edit: Also on Atley his Chris Judd traits which is very handy for us.

    All Hail Bryce Lewis i think Kanga. His drafting has been superb over the last couple of years for us.
    Steele Sidebottom and Ben Cunnington. My boys for 2012.

    Kangas would be stoked with Atley at 17. I think there recruiting has been terrific in the last few years, looking forward to watching them in a few years time.

    Im happy with Geelongs picks, very interested in Horlin-Smith at 37. Considering he hasn't even completed a AFL preseason there is a lot of upside.

    Yeah H-S is a likely type, good body size, neat on both sides of the body. Wouldn't be surprised to see him make it.
